In Dublin City in 1914 the boss was rich and the poor were slaves The women working and the children hungry then on came Larkin like a mighty wave The workers cringed when the boss man thundered seventy hours was their weekly chore They asked for little and less was granted lest getting little they'd asked for more Then came Larkin in 1914 a mighty man with a mighty tongue The voice of labour the voice of justice and he was gifted, he was young God sent Larkin in 1914 a labor man with a union tongue He raised the workers and gave them courage he was their hero and a workers son It was in August the boss man told us no union man for them could work We stood by Larkin and told the boss man we'd fight or die but we'd never shirk Eight months we fought eight months we starved we stood by Larkin through thick and thin
